President Donald Trump’s approval rating plunged 4 percentage points last week amid a wave of violence tied to religious, racial and political hatred. Eleven members of a synagogue, many elderly, were killed with an automatic weapon, allegedly by a man motivated by anti-Semitism and disdain for immigrants. More then a dozen bombs were allegedly mailed by a Trump supporter to top Democrats and journalists. And a white man was charged with murdering two black shoppers in Kentucky, in an attack the FBI said was a potential hate crime. —David E. Rovella
